Dry Fly Wheat Whiskey Port Finish Hard to find in stock !Dry Fly utilizes port barrels obtained from Townshend Cellar, a neighbor of theirs in Washington who produces Huckleberry Port. The port itself is billed as offering aromas of dried black currant, huckleberry, fig and black cherry with a hint of licorice. Huckleberry, chocolate, coffee and black currant linger with a long satisfying finish.Dry Fly Wheat Port Finish Wheat Whiskey are made from 100% soft winter-wheat sourced from a local Co-Ag Cooperative situated 25 miles north of Spokane. "We're in wheat country," says Fleischmann. "We have beautiful resources. That's why we utilize only local ingredients.""The stills are the pretty part," says Don Poffenroth as he points to his twin, custom-designed 450-liter Christian Carl copper-pot stills. Manufactured in Goppingen, Germany, the stills traveled over seven thousand miles to Dry Fly Distilling's home in Spokane, Washington, and today, are used to make the distillery's award-winning Washington Wheat Whiskey.Poffenroth and his co-founder, Kent Fleischmann, were inspired to open the doors to Dry Fly Distillery when they were knee-deep in the Gallatin River during a fly-fishing trip. "It was still early and the sun was rising slowly behind the alders," says Fleischmann. "It occurred to us how privileged we were to live, work, and fish in one of the most amazing places on Earth. We felt so fortunate that we wanted to find some way to share the natural beauty and purity of the great Northwest."Dry Fly Washington Wheat Whiskey is made from 100% locally-sourced soft winter wheat. "We're in wheat country," says Fleischmann. "We have beautiful resources. That's why we utilize only local ingredients." Farmers from the Co-Ag Cooperative 25 miles north of Spokane ship bags of Washington winter-wheat to Dry Fly Distilling every other week.After Poffenroth and Fleischmann receive the wheat, they mill and mash it before fermenting it in tanks located next to an electrocution-warning sign stamped in Russian Cyrillic. Following fermentation, the wash is distilled in the twin Christian Carl copper-pot stills before being aged in new, medium-charred American oak barrels sourced from the Bluegrass Cooperage in Tennessee. After aging the whiskey for a minimum of three years, Poffenroth and Fleischmann fill and seal each bottle by hand, noting its batch number and bottle number within the batch.Dry Fly Washington Wheat Whiskey, which won the Triple Gold Medal at the Micro Liquor Spirit Awards in 2011, has a nose of buttery toast and sweet, smooth notes of biscuits and baked bread. Light yet surprisingly complex, it is the first whiskey made in Washington since Prohibition. "We are trying to challenge the norm," says Fleischmann. "We want to raise the bar and produce something memorable that keeps people coming back."
